Drunk driving cases require careful attention to detail

On Behalf of | Mar 6, 2018 | DWI/DUI Defense, Firm News

People who are facing drunk driving cases need to make sure that they aren’t trying to hide from the charges. As tempting as it is to just ignore the case, you have to be proactive when you are in this position. Instead of trying to forget about the case, use the time between the arrest and the court date to work on a defense. We can help you with this.

Your drunk driving case can’t be handled with a defense that worked for someone else. Instead, you need a personalized defense that takes your circumstances into account. We need to look at what happened when you were stopped so that we can help you to determine what aspects of a defense strategy you need to focus on.

There are many different points that you might be able to bring up as part of your defense. The reason for the traffic stop might come up, especially if there wasn’t anything to give the officer reasonable suspicion about your impairment level.

Another factor to consider is the time between the traffic stop and the collection of the blood sample for testing to determine your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The method of collection and the way the sample is handled in the chain of possession also matter.

Ultimately, your defense has to be set based on the goals you have for the case and what happened when you were arrested. We need to discuss these matters and take a close look at the options. From there, we can help you to determine how to handle the case.
